The “Slick Trail Ride” , as many refer to the event, has been scheduled for October 11, 2014. The ride departs from. . . . yes that’s correct, Slick, Oklahoma promptly at 10:00am. The trail ride starts at the Slick Faith Baptist Church Arena and takes you through a beautiful private ranch. Registration starts at 8am Saturday morning, but the trail boss leads out at 10:00am sharp.
If you have never been on an organized trail ride, this would be a good one to learn. These guys are old-time cowboys who are good with horses and with people. The ride is attended by a lot of experienced riders on quiet horses. It’s only a day ride with lunch served at noon which is really nice for the first time out.
For those without a horse, there is a wagon you can enjoy, but it has limited seating. The $20 price is dirt cheap when you figure a really good lunch comes with the deal. Children under 8 attending with a paid rider can come without charge. It is a family style event with no alcohol allowed. Don’t forget your Coggins and look forward to seeing you there!!
If you have any questions, you can call Mike 918-706-4230 or Dwight 918-724-2025, They will make you feel right at home and most welcome!

The lunch break at the CCC trail ride in Slick, Oklahoma was filled with laughter, horse talk, and gospel music. The Coalition of Christian Cowboys offered more than just great company and superb food, they pulled out their instruments and played for everyone. The cowboys are the real deal! They can sit a horse and play a tune. Most of all, the make you feel right at home!

The trail ride in Slick, Oklahoma that the Coalition of Christian Cowboys put on Saturday was fabulous! You could not ask for a better time. The hosts, members of the Coalition of Christian Cowboys, were some of the nicest folks you could ever meet. Kind and courteous with the old style cowboy politeness of days long past set the tone for great day. The weather was splendid with the morning cool enough for a jacket and warm enough to want to take it off once lunch was over. The meal at lunch was perfect trail ride fare with barbecue sandwiches, hot dogs, fresh hot cobbler from a dutch oven, and wagon loads of cookies.
The trail ride was managed extremely well by the cowboys of the group making sure no one got lost and the ride proceeded safely. At home on a horse with years of experience as working cowboys, the team kept everyone moving along on time and helping any of those who needed it. Many of the attendees were experienced riders mounted on sound, well-behaved horses. It’s hard to articulate the difference in a well-run trail ride with competent riders from the ones that lack these key elements unless you’ve been there, and done it.
Trail boss, Dwight Plant, talked with us for a bit after returning to the trailers and explained the Fall ride will take place in October. We already plan to attend and suggest you do the same. This is a really great bunch of people who run a really nice day ride. We’ll tell you a little more about the ride and the CCC a little later. Sum it all up, a great day with wonderful people, lots of sunshine, warm weather, and experienced horsemen!
